Scientists from the Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science (AMSS), along with other collaborators, recently revealed that China's coal-fired power plants met ultra-low emission (ULE) standards ahead of schedule and also achieved substantial emission reductions between 2014 and 2017.
Scientists from the Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science, along with other collaborators, recently revealed that China's annual carbon emissions growth declined significantly from 10% during the 2002-2012 period to 0.3% during the period from 2012-2017. This decelerating trend in carbon emissions is closely related to a new phase of economic development the researchers have dubbed "the new normal."
Dr. LI Qiaoling, Prof. YAN Xiaoli and the collaborators from Fuxian lake solar observatory of Yunnan Observatories of the Chinese Academy of Sciences recently analyzed the formation and decay process of sunspot penumbra in the active region NOAA 12673. Their study is very important for understanding the evolution of sunspots and solar dynamo. In the future, the researchers plan to analyze more examples to address this issue by using high-resolution observations from the New Vacuum Solar Telescope (NVST) and other instruments.
Recently, researchers at Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics have introduced the concept of tri-focal Fibonacci sieve into telescope and successfully realized tri-planar identical copies, which met the single-shot requirement of curvature sensing.
Recently, the researchers from University of Science and Technology of China and Anhui Normal University, developed a "smart" strategy to increase the photothermal therapeutic efficiency of their corresponding diseases. In the future, they intend to apply their strategy on phototherapy‐synergized cancer immunotherapy or PTT‐assisted surgery to achieve a more efficient cancer therapy, where the PTAs can be in situ injected.
A research team led by Prof. LUO Junhua and ZHAO Sangen from Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter introduced F into silicophosphate system and successfully synthesized a new fluorooxosilicophosphate Na4Si2PO4F9 in closed glass tubes.
The Plant Bioinformatics Group led by Prof. ZHANG Xiujun from Wuhan Botanical Garden tested the influence of the environmental factor temperature on RNA editing process in the whole mRNA from grape organelle. They found that RNA editing was responsive to environmental inputs in the form of temperature alterations.
There are 4,000-5,000 species of parasitic plants in nature, accounting for 1% of angiosperms. Dodders are widely distributed holoparasites, and namely, they have very little or no photosynthesis activity. Recently, WU Jianqiang's group from the Kunming Institute of Botany reported that large numbers of proteins can be transported between the dodder Cuscuta australis and its host plant.
A team of researchers from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics have conducted a series of model perturbation experiments, producing datasets that can help improve predictions of monsoons. These datasets are useful especially for understanding the changes of sub-seasonal climate signals forced by the Tibetan-Iranian Plateau.
Emergent constraints are useful for narrowing the spread of climate projections and for guiding the development of more realistic climate models. However, they are sensitive to various factors. Thus, more consistency across emergent constraints is needed for better cross-validation of more likely projections.
A research team led by Prof. CAI Yan from the Institute of Software presented a novel detection method. This method focused on three kinds of concurrency vulnerabilities involving memory corruptions (i.e., UAF: Use-After-Free, NPD: Null-Pointer-Dereference and DF: Double Free), which are mostly considered to be caused by orders.
In order to reduce computational complexity of the blind source separation method, researchers from the Institute of Acoustics presented a low-complexity permutation alignment method based on the inter-frequency dependence of signal power ratio.
Prof. WANG Qiuliang's group from the Institute of Electrical Engineering developed an all-superconducting magnet with a central magnetic field of up to 32.35 Tesla (T), which is a new record of the highest magnetic field generated by all-superconducting magnets.
Prof. LI Yi's team from Institute of Metal Research, collaborating with researchers from UC Berkeley, evaluated the fracture properties and crack propagation process in gradient structured (GS) nickel, involving grain size gradients from ~30 nm to 4 μm. This study not only develops a mechanistic understanding of the fracture behavior of GS materials, but also provides practical guidelines for the use of such materials in safety–critical applications.
